two pm in moscow very good to have you with us our top story despite the ukrainian president saying he's ready for another cease fire violence in the east of the country rages on during a phone call mr poroshenko told us by his president biden he may reestablish the truce but let's talk take a look at the reality on the ground in the city of lagos one of the main hubs of n.d.p. have resistance it's come under renewed artillery overnight shells landing in a local cancer hospital and as you can see the building was damaged these are pictures from the city of kramatorsk and other target of kiev's military operation residential areas being hit some shells exploded near a playground and he government forces say one man was killed twenty wounded in the recent attacks locals say they are living in fear. but are you going to. look thank you. both guys if one magic is to be at.
but. there is no you know. there are you. this video from our roughly agency film in the small village of congress locals burying those killed by an army airstrike tuesday eleven people lost their lives including a five year old one ukrainian commander suggested the assault was an accident those living in villages and cities targeted by the military don't think the army was defending them. there's. somebody going to show them what is you know who. got. even. cheaper to use them you know these no. more of. these not. good. student teeth could do you. know you can skid you're going to do did used good news
because you can do these earlier this week when you order an end to the truce and relaunch the military offensive in eastern ukraine president poroshenko actually promised not to target residential areas or put civilians under threat. we will wind up in the liberating them producing energy cranes armed forces the national guard in iraq and the visions will never be enough votes against civilians that they will never target residential areas in school because the ukrainian troops have also been making presence in social media with videos like this servicing on the web shot in high quality presenting army regiments are the organized combat units picked up by media outlets across the world r.t.s. riff and osha went to see the reality behind the scenes. members of the ukrainian army's elite units demonstrate what is very special equipment with. these. business leaders here. are the three
that we. are says there. are a poet. the national guard was created four months ago to bolster the country's defenses its fighters were supposed to get the best and monisha but so far they say they've been flooded with empty promises and stain your brand of the animals of so we had to got most of the rats from these a love child of the family a film that was more of a part of the middle but there are a lot of people where their color qualified for this is the army's position outside slovyansk the key battleground in was killed because it's anti terror peroration bush and while the president declares it's active and decisive phase five is on the ground a confused as to where they stand often and literally i've got a promotion. there's a couple more than of their followers that they're going to give him
a larger picture of the moral equivalent of their lives are going to be left alone without them with a new assistant that you know was there you know if you come when you will it is almost belittling you know there's a lot of them no matter how hard it gets everyone should do what they're supposed to do have those limits with if that happens will win very quickly we're going to. get in the way as fast as two weeks the minister believes but many don't this is realistic stressed i mean there's nothing terrifying about returning to check point out has been attacked look over worries us is what will happen next if we doubt all nice capabilities to begin with the future looked bright for ukraine's soldiers and officers as well as those volunteering to join the military. here were carried year this will be our priority by the army of volunteers will get the equivalent of only five dollars per day and solid life insurance is welcome but it seems that president bush and co has not managed to keep the promises made in his location
companion they say they've raised the salaries but we didn't get any money in my husband didn't get it and they keep promising it will happen to more of my two year old daughter woke up this morning and said that she's her. what i'm supposed to tell her. that. will be making it but the result yes it was last. year in the midst of the week about does that mean if you could use did you come up close that you know you've got it with you as a response to the country's inability to take care of his own service personnel and number of on line fundraising complains were launched this is just one of many such projects they have raised enough to purchase a drone and some ammunition but most of the purchases are still in progress gives large scale operation is in full sweep but with the lack of basic supplies and weaponry many complain seems to me like the truthers to dine reef national
party. as a road is the main route to a checkpoint at the border with russia a road of life for refugees fleeing the fierce army shelling a video circulating on you tube reportedly shows what's going on there now. for hours and driving by are shot out with high caliber weapons you can see what's left of vehicles that have come under attack a shell lying on the ground locals say many drivers have been killed on the road it's already been called a cemetery for. while struggling to crush unrest in the east leaders in kiev also also have another major issue to deal with a looming gas crisis already dipping into long term storage tanks after russia cut supplies over unpaid bills and the e.u. leaders fear that could have a knock on effect for them this is energy chief gunther out injury he says germany could suffer because gazprom is concerned ukraine may start siphoning gas destined
for europe meanwhile russia's prime minister dmitry medvedev thinks there could be a full scale of gas crisis as soon as autumn making the claim on his facebook page so why is there so much concern about a wider gas crisis in europe well let's take a look at this map to explain things e.u. countries get their gas from russia via pipelines through ukraine but it's here to create may tap those supplies after having their own cut off by bosco that in turn may mean europe won't get the gas it needs this winter similar scenario happened in two thousand and six and two thousand and nine analyst william angle thinks brussels should put more pressure on kiev to avert another cold winter. edu officials are really acting very stupidly in this whole creating into the issue they should be putting enormous pressure on the kiev government to come to their senses europe is dependent asked from russia that gas right now goes through ukrainian pipelines but fortunately the e.u.
commission is trying to block the gas from south street which would discourage around the ukraine problem as does the north pipeline so i think you policy is really flying blind i don't know who is running the show. but it certainly has nothing to do with the interests of the european union for a stable economy and stable energy prices still to come on are to international whiskey not champaign is the u.k. law there's a new aircraft carrier the british queen heading to scotland to christen the u.k.'s biggest ever warship while the future of britain's nuclear missile system remains in question ahead of the independence referendum. with jihadi militants making significant advances in iraq saudi arabia has started moving military personnel close to its friends here with a war torn country reports come after iraqi troops were reportedly withdrawing from the area something baghdad denies a guy named sticky and takes a look. saudi arabia has reportedly sent thirty thousand troops to its border with
iraq across that border is a cauldron of sectarian infighting the isis is sunni it's a radical sunni jihadi are well armed and well funded saudi arabia also sunni doesn't want to be officially associated with the isis but it's hardly an innocent bystander many of the isis is most violent frontline fighters are believed to be saudi nationals there widespread reports that wealthy donors in saudi arabia had been funding the isis throughout their fight in syria and beyond riyadh may now say that it has nothing to do with the rise of this radical group that it itself is spread by but experts believe saudi arabia has helped create the floors in ways more than just providing funding and fighters they need to think. that. and i think the. saudi arabia means studio. a lot of teaching to do that to you. just in the span of several years
bolstered by the fight against assad in syria the isis has advanced so far as to declare an islamic caliphate across the territories that it now controls both iraq and syria the question is what the saudi arabia sees the isis as a serious threat it has warned against foreign military into ference in iraq and now iran is reportedly sending fighter jets to help the iraqi government fight the jihad as army. will saudi arabia sit still lots of questions one thing is clear the coltan of six kerry intentions is only getting more explosive in washington i'm going to check out our team so i think riyadh is seeking to gain the upper hand in the region german journalist manuel oxon writer weighed in on that. one site they finance and they support isis with their actions on the other sites they supply their troops to the border ready for interfering so this is also
a trust occasion and of course an excuse for maybe later on entering iraq saudi arabia of wants to play since a long time the role of the region the leading power in the east and iraq as well as syria by the way of very important battlefields and the biggest competition for saudi arabia of course is iran iran is the big state at the influential state with a lot of influence also on the shia population in iraq iraq is mixed we know that so saudi arabia tries there to expand their influence. still to come are you still using online services or you can seal your identity or location well that means you could be a potential terrorist in the eyes of the n s a stay with us for more details on that. there's a media leader so we need to be. by the same motions to the other your party there's
a goal. for shoes that no one is asking with to get that you deserve answers from it's all on politics only on our team. on merit in the financial world. developments happening on topics the only taken the demand to credit not going to get any economic benefit in life there are down. economic down in the final. days. and the rest until you meet every.
fourteen minutes past the hour anger in german immigration policies reached a boiling point in berlin after dozens of refugees barricaded themselves in an unused schoolhouse their plight has attracted crowds of protesters feria so what they say is an unfair treatment of asylum seekers peter all reports when it comes to refugees the message from german leaders is clear. solidarity is first and foremost a basis for any relationship and a symbol of our democracy the refugees who arrive in the italian maltese coast are not just up to it's really or malta to deal with however this is the reality around sixty people are currently holed up in the abandoned schoolhouse just behind me here in central and they're angry it's the way they see refugees being treated here
in germany now what we have seen is a standoff between them and police this road here in the center of the german capital has been shot so often is a large police presence here a large group of demonstrators gather at either end of this street and they're angry at what they see as a double standard by the german government when it comes to refugee rights but if you put on that. supply the weapons that are used in the conflicts that man these people had to flee then we don't let them work and put them on campus when they get here yet is that our laws that deal with these people are very repressive and inhumane i didn't know they make it so hard for people to stay here they're actually recognised as refugees from the e.u. and convention but germany doesn't accept this status they just want to push them back into to delhi or depart and back into the country many of those inside the school which includes refugees from ghana and nigeria and syria police are understood to be in favor of evacuating the building and some opposition
politicians are hoping a solution can be found that sees the group allowed to stay in the abandoned school bus fish and about chandler should be no violent eviction of the refugees from the school despite the words of the german president about doing more to help refugees this district in berlin remains in a droll over what they see as hypocrisy and asylum peter all over r.t. the lead. to other countries russia's top talent on the court but right now she's feeling the full force of the world's fair play by later. in the program. but first new generation aircraft carrier about to be officially named by the british queen friday she travels to scotland for the ceremony to queen elizabeth is the first of two warships being built at a cost of more than ten billion dollars it's expected to be her majesty's last official engagement in scotland before a yes or no referendum on staying part of the u.k. in september artie's polly boyko reports. it's birth is taking place in scotland
which is why the queen is christening the u.k.'s new super carrier with whisky instead of champagne pointing to the u.k.'s defense secretary it's a demonstration of britain at its very best the royal navy has sixteen ships and submarines and two royal marines commando units based in scotland the s.n.p. has promised to maintain all military establishment in scotland in the event of independence but the problem is that at the moment there's simply no agreement over what would happen to britain's defense says if scotland were to leave the union the u.k.'s first scene lord has warned that the royal navy is already constrained by budget cuts and the split with scotland would further weaken the effectiveness of britain's maritime defense says since the s.n.p. say that they would abolish nuclear weapons in the event of a yes vote many questions surround the future of trying to end the u.k.
submarine based nuclear missile system that station and western scotland tridents unique deep water location is of key strategic importance as it provides quick access to the atlantic finding somewhere else to park the u.k.'s nuclear deterrent would be a long and complicated process that's likely to make nato extremely nervous scotland's had a historical role in the royal navy at the battle of trafalgar almost a third of nelson's men was gawd's but if they vote yes to independence britain's new asst super aircraft carrier could be the last to be launched in scottish waters polly boyd r.t. . both sides in the in or out campaign have promised to keep step up their game rather my colleague evan owen discussed possible scenarios with campaigners i feel depressed at the thought of scotland breaking away i think it diminishes us all.
all right to be quite honest i don't think the s.n.p. had really thought through in detail the implications of some things and defense was one of the ones they haven't thought it through in great detail i think when we talk about defense and independent scotland all roads eventually lead to tried and the fast lane based on the clyde and scottish government which is by no means a done deal then it would seek the speediest and safest removal of trident from scottish territory u.k. government's position has been that they don't think that this will happen cost of redeploying of the trident the ballistic missile submarines and the weapons is huge i've talked to the head of some of the big firms that have small offshoots in scotland they will move south it will be a catastrophe for scottish defense industry the senate defense interested itself will be feeling very very carefully looking at their options at what they should be doing will britain's defense force survive without scotland's assets and interests
yes of course it will survive the if should scotland separate the remains of the u.k. will still have defense forces see area air space is crucially important to us all but of course we would we would actually fight to look after them that an independent scotland supplication to join nato was successful then. scotland would come under the article five of the north atlantic treaty and would expect the rest of the nato organization to come to their aid and vice versa. turning now to some other stories making the list pardon me global headlines the israeli military has bolstered forces along the volatile of the gaza strip this move coming in response to intensifying rocket fire and mounting tension in the region officials say deployment of tanks artillery and ground forces meanwhile in tel aviv a demonstration took place condemning violence between israel and palestine protests also happening a lot more palestinians mourn the death of a teenager earlier this week.

a parliament committee in germany on thursday things current laws are failing to curb mass surveillance. it doesn't it doesn't do what needs to be done i mean they need to have. they did have a process that those limits what n.s.a. looks at and can take in and store in its database and so that other like law enforcement or other agencies in the government can take advantage of it and use it to illegally but fundamentally boils down to the respect for the rights of others and their rights to privacy and their rights to be left alone that's the foundational of our constitution you can take a look at the the storage facilities they're building you get an idea of how much they're taking in like a million square foot storage facility in bluffdale utah another six hundred thousand square foot facility they're starting to build they started last summer. in fort meade on fort meade and then a four hundred thousand square foot facility they have down in san antonio and other stories that they've had existing all along at fort meade as well as other
facilities around the world one way to help this new ping could be a tablet computer on r.t. dot com we'll show you how the room had deals with online villains by physically disconnecting its camera and microphone. heading up the atlantic and as the hurricane spirals up the coast new york residents granted a spectacular light show before the start thunderstorm touches down and we're not talking about fourth of july fireworks. she's world renowned tennis royalty but russia's maria sharapova has crashed out of wimbledon just one round before the quarterfinals she's still trending on twitter although the hash tag has nothing to do with her formidable for hand but rather who is maria sharapova earlier i asked our team's head of social media over crotty about what the deal is. that's right who is maria sharapova well. unfortunately fell out of wimbledon a little bit earlier than we'd have liked but she was fielding questions from the
press afterwards and was asked about the fact that david back and i had been watching her game in center court now she responded very positively about david attending the game was then asked by a journalist what she thought about the fact that indian cricket god sachin tendulkar had also been watching the game masha shook her head was honest and said actually i don't know who such intent to occur is that's where things took off and so who tell us who he is and why this is such a big reaction in his home country and how internet as a whole is really reacting ok well let's start with tendulkar himself he is the greatest cricket player of his generation and he has literally venerated as a god in india now as you can see that's where twitter took off so these are this is a hash tag map of who has show up and you can see basically in the cricket playing countries of the world not an i know is an american and like i say there's even one in the states so i think we're ever something goes on on twitter that there's always be something in the states but then like the supermarkets of cricket fans there anyhow india and the u.k.
took to it thought it was hilarious and what happened was basically means sprung up such as these with luis suarez getting in getting involved in others that gave a bit of a slagging about it would not knowing who this fantastic cricket player is of course you know the quick playing world expects everybody to know who's action to america is not everybody does and the fact remains of course that masha is the perhaps the you know one of the great sportsmen of her generation and certainly the highest earning sportswoman of her generation but she was never the less able to take a bit of a trolling on twitter whether i guess in the eyes of her fans it might be regarded as cricket or not fair play or not. next a larry king talks about difficulties that the economy in the us may be about to face that and more on politicking stay with us.
yes it's official the mainstream media must be made up of stereotypical gossipy teenage girls i mean how else can you explain the fact that michelle obama using the term chipped has become a scandal i don't white house summit on working families mrs obama explained that when she was working part time she realized she was getting chipped because she was actually working full time but only getting paid the part time salary technically the term gypped is somewhat racist and implies the gypsies are all con men but in the modern world i think most people don't even know where the term comes from i doubt michelle obama likes a medieval peasant shield her children from wandering gypsies who could give them the evil eye i seriously question if there is any deep racial intent in the statement i personally would let the first lady off the hook but the question is would she do the same for me or any other person in the media probably not but thankfully for mrs obama she can't be fired from being the first lady only divorced
or her husband's term ends now for me and every other person saying their opinion on camera we've got to be a lot more careful but that's just my opinion. numbers of the people in q.'s independence square would not terrorists and the people of the bus they are the terrorists. just because we don't agree with what kiev is trying to impose on us and stand by our real conviction this is an impotent as. i'm larry king and joining me from washington is the host of our d america does the
big picture and the syndicated radio talk show host tom hartman tom is also a new york times best selling author his most recent book the crash of two thousand and sixteen in the book you say that the country's in the midst of an economic implosion the could make the great depression seem small are you an economist still lives is come from. i'm a reporter earlier and and a commentator and better on the block a few times over in a couple of books about economics but i'm not credentialed as an economist but i think that. pretty much everybody there's a growing consensus i think pretty much everybody has figured out that our economy has been rigged it's been gamed it it really got taken apart badly in the late ninety's nine hundred ninety nine and two thousand with gramley. which blew up the glass steagall act with the commodity futures modernization act both of which were promoted at the request of ken lay of enron and allowed the
ultimately the banks to get into this derivative business and all these other things these to these too big to fail banks so and you know it crashed in two thousand and seven and instead of fixing it we just kind of threw bubble gum and bailing wire out it and that's why i suggest that it's going to that that crash as not ended yet and in fact it's going to get even worse because we're reinflating the bubble but we're not fixing the structure and when it does crash i pick twenty sixteen because i think. the president nobody wants to be you know crash to happen on their watch and so the fed the white house and everybody you know they're going to do everything they can to hold that off as long as they can so if ever two thousand and sixteen looks likely to me but george bush was trying to hold off until november of two thousand and eight and he was off by about nine months so he was not successful he would. use.
